Hope they have stiff fines for those fisher people who use explosives or other damaging methods. Indonesia isn't the only place with damaged coral reefs. Wish them luck in bringing back their reefs. Thank you.

Dear all friends, thank you for your attention and comments. Hopefully all the work done to restore the coral reefs condition in Indonesia can run well. Of course, involving all stakeholders, including governments and coastal communities ... I'm sure with good socialization and implementation of appropriate technologies hopefully all these efforts will yield positive results.

What does one expect from Indonesia!. They have destroyed a once beautiful country to grow palm oil, and they destroyed their fishing waters. Now they are pirating our Australian waters to destroy that too. They have no idea of managing the environment within sustainable levels. Greed by a few billionaires (palm oil) and a mass of ignorant peasants are virtually killing Indonesia. Not to mention a corrupt government who makes a lot of money funneling refugees to Australia for a fist full of gold and then let them drown. The lucky survivors most likely will end up in camps in PNG or other Pacific islands.

Dear Klaus,
Your accusations against our country are very unfounded, as anywhere in this world not only in Indonesia or Australia, there must be bad guys, corrupt bureaucrats, crooked politicians who always enrich themselves at the expense of others. Not all Indonesian people like that ....
For the refugee, to my knowledge the Indonesian government never took advantage with the refugees who want to cross into Australia. International syndicates that move the refugees and bribe the local corrupt officials in Indonesia. And the Indonesian Government has always treated the refugees with good and in accordance with international rules. Those things are too political to be discussed further.
For us, the opportunity for change is always there as long as we want to try to change.
